"Former Four Seasons Chinzanso, Hidden Luxury Hotel in close to downtown Tokyo"
If not for the special campaign the started 2017, called "SU-DOMARI" or without reservation special day rate - JPY15,500 per person or about USD130(!), I possibly will be very reluctant to pay regular rate of JPY45,500 or USD420 per night, but I was lucky enough to catch this offer(not always available, please check first).By this price, similar to may regular hotels in Tokyo, you will have option of ether city view - with splendid view of Tokyo downtown or the garden view - this is a unique astonishing view of their fantastic garden. History is present in this hotel with roots in the 4th Year of Ansei Period(安政時代),circa Year 1858, when it was of the fields of a powerful feudal lord(Daimyo).The contemporary Chinzansho Hotel roots is back to 1952 when it was opened to sophisticated clients as Garden Restaurant, in 1992 they associated with The Four Seasons, then called Four Seasons Chinzanso. In 2013 the contract was terminated and now they are independent Hotel. As fusion of experience with Four Seasons with traditional Japanese Hospitality the Chinzanso`s all rooms are 45m2, the top in its category, The standard room, called Permium Classic Pair King is equipped with large LCD TV, Writing desk, and two telephone lines. Bathroom has different installation for Bathtub and Shower booth, providing extra comfort. About the restaurant - it is a difficulty task to choose between their five options, One Italian International the Il Teatro, International cuisine at The Bistro, and Three Japanese top notch restaurants(Category of "Ryotei" - a superior class Japanese restaurant). Since I had to host a business lunch I choose the Il Teatro, for party of 7. Surprisingly in the case the private room use is not charged. They were very kind to suggest the Italian Full Course, and you do not be shy to tell them about your budget, they will provide something close( They did, in my case). The CIliegio Course, Cherry in Italian. The course - Starter, Shrimp and Edamame Salad with Balamico dressing and Fish Carpaccio(Don't remember the fish, sorry), Primo Piato- Tagliolini in creamy saffron sauce with Zuwai crab, Carni - Duck Confit in Honey with Wine Sauce, Dessert from the wagon(Many choices) and Espresso. It takes full two hours to complete the course and they everything is good as any top restaurant in Milan( the style trend to North Italy in fusion with Japanese touch). For all those qualities, It won't be an exaggeration that is a kind of bargain, for special occasions as important business meeting( you can have meeting in their Coffee Shop), Birthday, Engagement or something similar. In spite Chinzanso is not included in the "trendy" Luxury Hotel in Tokyo, there is a plenty of reasons to put them in a list of Japan's top luxury hotels
I am currently staying at hotel Chinzanso in Tokyo and I am absolutely amazed about the hospitality and attention to details there. The rooms are beautiful, the staff is well trained and super friendly and André the Manager provides an incredible level of oversight and guidance. He clearly knows what good looks like which is not easy to find in Tokyo. I have been to many fancy hotels in Tokyo over the past 15 years but I would declare Hotel Chinzanso my new clear favorite hotel.
"Close to perfection"
We travel as a family fairly often and had a pleasure to stay in Hotel Chinzanso as a family of 5 with 2 kids (7 and 8 yrs) for 6 nights. Pure pleasure on all levels. Location is not central but allows you to experience a feeing of "real people" Tokyo. Wonderfully kept gardens, friendly staff and beautiful property. Highly recommended.
"The best hotel experience ever"
I dont even know where to start. The hotel staff stood out as the best in customer service, it felt surreal. The room was good, nothing to complain about and the facilities were also enjoyable, such as the heated pool, jacuzzi and artificial hot spring. I am seriously considering going back in a week or so.. I loved it. Special thanks to Mr. Sol and his concierge team for their kind hospitality.
"Best Hotel in central Tokyo with amazing fireflies!"
A highly underrated top notch 5 star hotel very much in the Japanese mold . As the ex-Four Seasons Hotel in Tokyo, you will not miss the trappings of a neo classic Four Season. It is maintains the charm but is run by the likes of Japanese efficiency that is 2nd to none. Outstanding service from an attentive and professional team. Only down side is the location is a little out of the way from the usual hustle and bustle of Tokyo tourist belt. Not a problem is you drive and park in the hotel ample parking lost. Great Japanese restaurants. Amazing firefliy japanese garden that must be enjoyed at least once . Quite a famous local attraction for viewing fireflies at night with the locals! All in all a great hotel and a huge secret that eludes most travelers to Tokyo looking to stay at a 5 star hotel.
